July 30, 2015

The-Glossier-DermaE-Hydrating-Serum-Review-1 copySkincare junkie, checking in!

I thought I’d share my thoughts with you today on a new serum that I’ve been trying out, by Derma E, called the Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. I’ve only recently begun to incorporate products containing hyaluronic acid recently, and I’ve noticed big changes to my skin! I was not disappointed with this product whatsoever, and I’ll tell you why after the jump.

Can’t Stand The Heat

July 24, 2015

The-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-15 copyThis is the summer of suffering. We either have torrential downpour rain, or scorching temperatures, and nothing in between. I’m definitely pairing down my wardrobe a bit, i.e. I ditched the jackets—for now, summer has won.The-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-1 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-7 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-12 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-4 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-18 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-16 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-9 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-11 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-5 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-6 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-14 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-8 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-2 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-3 copyThe-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-Lookbook-Outfit-Summer-DC-13 copyI thought I’d switch it up though, and wear something kind of easy but sophisticated. I live for neutrals, and so I just gravitated to this palette. I’ve been loving pencil skirts lately, and this one from Ann Taylor Loft is a great fit on me. Since I’m obviously not going to work (I almost typed werk, Lord help me), I dressed it down with a cute ribbed crop top from Forever 21. The heels are surprisingly from Charlotte Russe, and the flash lens sunglasses are thrifted.

I’m still totally loving gold jewelry this summer, and I’ve added another Luca Jewelry piece to my collection. I love the minimalism of bar necklaces, and I love wearing the vertical and horizontal bars together, it’s really simple yet elegant. If you haven’t already signed up for my newsletter, be sure to do that soon, I’ll be announcing a giveaway where you can win a Luca Jewelry necklace!

Anyway, I know it’s too hot to exist, let alone get dressed, but I’d still love to hear what some of your favorite summer looks are, or tips on staying cool. Oh, and if you’re a blogger reading this, comment with your URL, I want to check out some new blogs! :)

The White Idea

July 13, 2015

The-Glossier-Blogger-Fashion-Style-All-White-Summer-Lookbook-8Lately (as you can probably guess), I’ve been obsessed with all-white outfits. Typically, I’m someone who is cursed when it comes to all-white, I almost always come home with some crazy stain, in some place I didn’t even know you could get stains. Recently, though, I’ve been pretty good with keeping my white clothes clean, so, just as anyone with a streak such as mine would do—I’m pressing my luck.

Kidding Around

July 2, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-Overalls-Adidas-Vans-Red-Lips-Style-Fashion-Blogger-17 copyToday, I dressed totally for comfort. We attended an Instagram meetup earlier in the evening (check it out on my snapchat, username: theglossier), and I knew we’d be walking around a bit. Overalls remind me of those years between 5 and 12, when I had no perception of danger, trees were climbed, bikes were pedaled at top speeds, scraped knees, mosquito bites everywhere, neighborhood tag was the biggest summertime event, we were reckless, wild, and we had no rules, only fun. That’s how I wanted to feel today. Carefree, and fun.

Photo Diary: White House Lifts 40 Year Old Ban on Photography | #WhiteHouseTour

July 2, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-White-House-Tour-Photo-Ban-Lift-2015-40 copyYesterday, I was honored to attend the very first public White House Tour that allowed photography and social media. For over 40 years, the White House has banned guests from taking photography on tour, and in an effort to make this the most accessible White House in history, the ban has been lifted. Photographs (but not video) and sharing to social media are encouraged for anyone who takes the tour, and that’s a great thing, because the White House is extremely photogenic!

Fringe Benefits

June 29, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-Fashion-Blogger-HM-Calvin-Klein-Jeans-Bloglovin-Awards-Skate-Park-DC-1 copyCrop tops and summer go together like peanut butter and jelly—this one, from H&M is one that I picked up a couple of weeks ago, and even though I wasn’t sure how to style it, I had to buy it for the tassel fringe alone. I love when clothing has fun little details that just add a bit of dimension to an otherwise simple piece. The tassels make me feel like dancing, and moving around; I can definitely see this being great for festivals, or a night out dancing. I thought it would be fun to style it for daytime though, and incorporate it into my usual denim uniform.

Balancing Act

June 15, 2015

The-Glossier-Fashion-Style-Blogger-DC-Black-Leather-Shorts-White-Blazer-4I think I need to develop a line of blazers, and jackets, no? My growing obsession is beginning to spiral out of control, but, for good reason—blazers are life! I finally found a white blazer for summer, that I couldn’t wait to wear!

Summer Layers

June 8, 2015

Tasha-James-The-Glossier-Fashion-Beauty-Style-Blogger-Adidas-Originals-Palm-Tree-Hawaiian-Gwen-Stefani-Zara-Dr-Denim-Kurly-Klips-Outfit-Lookbook-5I’m someone who, no matter what season it is, loves to layer. I feel like outfits are never complete as is, and to make a look totally your own thing, you have to add in some flavor! I’ve mentioned before how I think jackets (blazers in particular) do a lot to finish a look, but, usually in a structured kind of way. This jacket from Adidas has zero structure, is wispy and light, but still manages to finish off my outfit, and with so much attitude to boot.
